Volné směry: umělecký mĕsíčník was a monthly (1896-1948) of the Mánes Association of Fine Artists in Prague, a large, secessionist exhibition society that facilitated contacts between Czech artists and the European avant-garde. For many years it was the premier Bohemian avant-garde periodical, with contributions on art, architecture, and literature.

Edited by Miloš Jiránek, Jan Preisler and František Xaver Šalda. Among the contributors were Julius Meier Graefe, Jan Kotěra, František Bilek, or Karel Vitĕzslav.
